Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Homicide Unit and Missing Persons Unit are conducting an investigation into a possible domestic related altercation or a potential kidnapping that occurred at the 7500 block of Waterford Square Drive in the South Division. The call for service came in at 4:47 p.m., on Tuesday, May 08, 2012.
South Division Officers responded to a kidnapping call at the Waterford Apartments off of Carmel Road and met with a witness who stated that he observed two black male subjects in an SUV (possibly a light colored Yukon or Tahoe) stopped in the middle of the roadway. The witness stated that the vehicle tag number had a possible combination of YKA-5791. He also stated that one of the male subjects was holding a female. The female appeared to be struggling to free herself from the male but the male appeared to push the female inside of the vehicle. After the female was inside of their vehicle, the male subjects then fled in the SUV towards Carmel Road. The female was described as a Hispanic or a light skinned black female in her 20’s, with medium length brown hair, wearing a dark colored dress. The identity of the female is unknown at this time.
Detectives with the Homicide Unit are canvassing the neighborhood to attempt to determine the identity of the female and to determine if an actual crime occurred. They are also attempting to identify the male subjects involved and any additional witnesses to this incident. The investigation is in its early stages. As additional information develops, it will be released by CMPD Public Affairs.
Crime Scene Search responded to the call for service to process the scene and collect physical evidence.
